Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever
Aug. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- Many people dread public speaking, but their jobs or roles in their communities sometimes require it. People tend to rely on statistics, visual aids, or a barrage of information to get them through a presentation, but this is not what the audience wants. In Being the Best Bad Presenter Ever, Karen Hough makes the simple point that audiences are really there for human contact. Stage fright disappears when the presenter connects with the meeting's purpose and the people in the audience, which happens by being natural and authentic.

Successful public speakers have learned to:

*Prepare their talks ahead of time, focusing on a minimum number of main points and straightforward discussion.

*Practice their presentations, and their delivery, several times. Getting a friend or family member to sit in will generate valuable feedback.

*Consider the audience, how best to reach them, and what their calls to action should be.

*Be themselves, rather than shooting for perfection.

*Encourage self-confidence with breathing habits, good organization, and intentional body language.

*Regulate their speech, rather than rushing it, and allow opportunity for audience participation.

*Tell stories that the audience can relate to, instead of relying on facts and figures to get the message across.

*Turn a snafu into a positive, whether it is an equipment malfunction, a heckler in the audience, or a mistake of their own making.

*Speak with passion for their subjects, but keep emotions out of their presentations.
